A recent excursion to Oliver and the quest for exceptional wines led down the Golden Mile to Tinhorn Creek. The wines are made with a modern attitude in a classic manner. The sweet smell of Cedar barrels engulfs the senses while on the tour of their incredible facility. From seed to bottle, Tinhorn's mission is to provide exceptional wine while being environmentally conscious.

On the immense property is the contemporary restaurant Miradoro. A beautiful partnership between Manuel Ferreira and Tinhorn Creek.  With panoramic views, there is no bad seat in the restaurant including their large patio seating.  In keeping with Tinhorn and Miradoro's vision for carbon neutrality, they are more than pleased to provide patrons with Vivreau water (sparkling or flat).

The menu is as exquisite as the Winery itself. From tapas to dinner to dulce their menu will deliver incredible tastes for all your senses. From the Charcuterie plate (chef prepared plate of meats and pates) to Albondigas (pork and beef meatballs in a roast tomato sauce), the selections will keep everyone's palate from getting stale.

If you love pizza, Miradoro's traditional pizza oven delivers perfectly baked pizza with premium toppings like pancetta and smoked mozzarella.  Of course, if you still have room, the desserts are to die for. Whether it be a slice of decadent tiramisu or the gentle but tart lemon créme served with apricot compote and a lavender sablé cookie.

Whether you pop into Miradoro for a glass of Tinhorn Creek Rose (when available) and a quick bite or enjoy a bottle of Quinta Ferreira Cabernet Sauvignon and a leisurely meal, you'll come away with a memory that will last a lifetime. Tinhorn Creek, Miradoro and Oliver BC a triple treat for anyone to enjoy.
